    My daughter who has Celiac had fish and chips and onion stings for the first time ever!! The fried calamari was also amazing! They use chick pea flour to fry everything so all fried food is gluten free. She had a fried food frenzy which she never has had in her entire life and loved it!! The waiter was so kind and knowledgeable it was awesome!!!

    Super yummy. I have found legal seafood to be universally wonderful and taking celiac and food allergies seriously. I was in a rush but was quickly provided with super yummy fried shrimp and fries all GF to go. Before my international flight this was a must!

    Happy with my visit. I had a crabmeat sandwich (because it was $10 cheaper than a lobster sandwich). It came on a soft, warm, flaky GF bun. I'm told the fries are safe, but I think they serve some other breaded and fried things. Regular menu is clearly marked with things that are or can be made GF. Much appreciated! Many options. Sandwiches are reasonably priced . (Most are $15-25). Some reviewer said the whole kitchen is GF. That's not true.

    Great service!! The chef came out and assured us they took every precaution they could! The fryer does not have gluten items Fried in it so you can have the French fries or the onion strings! I had the grilled shrimp, French fries and polenta no problems! (And some of my husbands onion strings - they made his meal gf too so that I could have some of his!)

The wait staff was exceptional and they sympathetically understood celiac disease! We WILL find a way to eat there again!

    Exceptional! For Celiac sufferers, I cannot imagine a better experience. GF options are marked on the menu and extensive. They have a dedicated GF frier, so you can even enjoy fish and chips or fried clams in GF batter. They also have GF rolls. Our non-GF friends had their food brought out by our server, but all the GF items were brought out by a manager to ensure no cross contamination. Legal really goes above and beyond to cater to GF diners. We would highly recommend to GF locals like ourselves or tourists looking for fresh New England seafood without the risk of gluten cross contamination.

My daughter was so happy to finally be able to eat this at a restaurant! Everything that can be made gf is designated in the menu.

    Excellent choice for dinner!! Our waiter helped with our GF and DF questions. The only "mess-up" came when we realized that my husband could have requested egg wash prior to frying as opposed to a buttermilk wash. He had the Fisherman's Platter. He was very pleased with the taste!! I had the char-grilled snapper with broccoli and rice which covered my GF and DF needs. The GF rolls are also DF which we had with olive oil brought to the table as opposed to butter. When I asked if the rolls were made in house, they said no, but they wrote down the name of the company from which they were ordered. The rolls are made specifically for the restaurant, but I look forward to checking out the website for other GF possibilities. We will definitely return when back in DC!!!

    used to be very good. still good with allergy-friendly dining, but the most recent time we went, with multiple people with different allergies at the table (that's why we chose this place bc they've always handled it well), we waited over an hour for food, and no check in from management. poor waiter got stuck in the middle, fearing that we would leave him no tip. manager emerged only bc we ask for one at the end of the meal, and a small discount was reluctantly offered. not much of a heartfelt apology either. makes it hard to think about returning to this location with that kind of service.

    Flying through Boston's Logan airport today for a late night flight to Canada. Needed to find some dinner during my 90 minute layover and was lucky enough to find this across from my gate. It's a bit pricey like any other airport restaurant, but worth it. So the majority of the menu is or can be GF. What a find. So since I'm in Boston I had to have clam chowder and legals fried clams. It's been years since I've had fried clams in a restaurant so had to do it. Chowder was great. The fried clams were good. So per server all their fryers in all locations are GF.

    I have to change my initial rating. While I don't think I was glutened with this meal, I did get violent food poisoning. I ate grilled trout and coleslaw (& some fries). Not sure what happened. It was bad. I'm sad to cross this one off my list of choices. Initial Response: Great meal. It was a relief to eat here. They knew what they were doing.
